did he clarify whether this investor is one of the two investors that suddenly appeared at the start of the year (and have since disappeared), or is it a Brand New One?

They aren't going to let us know about those sort of details - we are mere turnstile fodder to them.

But to be fair though who in their right mind would trust this lot with 10 let alone 1 Million they would have to be mad or stupid - or both !!

Probably. Just that they haven't told him yet. I'm sure he'll be delighted though. We're as safe as an ISA with the Iranian National Bank.

ffs this board do my nut.

they have a sound investor with BP and a way to move this club forward yet they are hell bent on staying and pissing us off even more.

When willy gained control of the club 5 years ago he did so by forcing the other guys out (forgot what it's called) can BP not do this with Willy and the cunt diamond Mike

I know this is Swindon Town and we whould never be surprised, but Starnes says on the BBC web site:

"I understand the investment would be substantial and make a big difference to Swindon Town's finances."

He 'understands' that the investment will be substantial, he's the Chief Executive FFS if he doesnt know who bloody does!

Actually he's still ACTING Chief Exec, and we all know he has no power, as he takes orders from Diamond Mike.

Starnes is kept out of the loop, only being told what they want to tell him.

Good afternoon

I hope you are all well and enjoying a few Saturday's away from football after what was a successful season for us. I returned from my holiday late last night and as you can see, it's straight back to the thick of things!

The Kingswood Group have now been announced as the club's new main sponsors and I am delighted with the news. They are a local company and it kicks-off the year in the right way. I want us, as a football club, to be closer to the community of Swindon and we have started things how we mean to go on. Kingswood have helped us already with the redevelopment of the referee's room last season and they also donated a van to assist with kit transportation. I am looking forward to developing what is already an excellent relationship we have with The Kingswood Group.

Kingswood Construction Launch

I think most managers and most players are on holiday at this moment in time. I have made a lot of phone calls and spent a fair amount of time whilst on the cruise making calls. I have a lot of feelers out and I am waiting on word from several agents about their players availability. There is nothing concrete at the moment, but now I am back things will start to move although I do have a few people who are keen to join us. In a few weeks time the shoe will be on the other foot, with agents phoning me.

There has been a lot of speculation whilst I have been away, linking ourselves with several of my former players. In principle this is something that may interest me, because I would know the players well but that would be the case in any case of life. It gives me options that's for sure. There are many areas I'd like to strengthen and we shall see what develops over the coming weeks.

Investors are on the horizon and if that comes to fruition then the goalposts would move for me in terms of transfer targets. I am very hopeful that the investment will happen and it would help me in my search for 'prime beef' to add to the squad.

Andy Nicholas and Michael Pook were away on holiday when I left for my break, so I will be talking to them this week. There are still places to fill in the squad and I still have to have conversations with Blair, Claude and Patrick too. I am looking to streamline the squad for League One although there are key areas we need to fill.

I am now going to head back to Sheffield to take my family back home, although I have a meeting with an agent on my way back!
